I encourage professionals and students to...

...post more of your upcoming orchestra concerts where the tuba offers some interesting solo lines or integral/contributory parts...particularly if (...well...) it's going to be "good". :|

Personally (though I admire great tuba soloists) am not a particular fan of "tuba solo literature". I would wager that I am not alone in my tastes, and that some of us might (??) drive 1 - 2 hours to audit (including ticket purchase costs) some of these orchestra performances.

Chris Okla, as an example of this, just posted regarding his upcoming performances of the (complete) Prokofiev "Romeo & Juliet" ballet.

Chris and I did a tuba demo at an elementary school a few years ago. I was sitting next to him when we played Montagues and Capulets. You really should go see this! You will be very impressed.
